Flaming into Spring…

Another eye-catching spring blooming tree is the African Tulip Tree (Spathadea campanulata). The bright red/orange tulip shape blooms appear in clusters up to 80ft. high above the place one usually admire Tulips.

Flame of the Forest” is another name for the African Tulip Tree. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Natural bouquets of Tulips; a little difficult to collect. Best observed uncut. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

The rims of the petals are fringed appearing more orange than the rest of the bloom. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Eventually, like all blooms the petals rest of the Earth. Here petals are accompanied by a Blue Dasher Dragonfly. It was a fun surprise evident only upon reviewing my saved images. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
